“From the beginning of this process, I can’t say enough how helpful Lauren and Nate Stockard at Blue Atlas were throughout. The website redesign was complete in record time – from a RFP proposal in March to a new website launch in August – and it met all of the key elements that we had outlined in our plan. This was no easy accomplishment in itself considering the consortium has nine member colleges and each of us has a different opinion, especially with something as subjective as a new web design.”
Jed T. YoungChair, Marketing and PR Committee, Texas Gulf Coast Community Colleges Consortium

Our new website is now the primary contact point for our citizens, contractors and other interested parties. In today’s communication environment, we needed to be able to get information available to the public as quickly as possible and in a clear, attractive format. Blue Atlas provided a great service and continues to work with us to constantly improve our service to our public.”
Steve SmithDirector of Public Works/Building Official, City of Bunker Hill Village
“Although Time Rewind is all about history, we didn’t want a website that looked ancient. Blue Atlas gave our site a contemporary design, expanded functionality and the perfect environment for capturing pivotal moments from the past with an eCommerce component connecting today’s consumers to it. The Blue Atlas team combined our vision with what was realistic from a design standpoint, and the result is fantastic!”

Most frequent questions and answers
What is website design ?
Web design, in our opinion, is the creation of your website’s design and programming it to bring it to life. There are many design firms that just provide design services and hand it off to you or a company like us to program it.
There are also some companies that just program and leave off the design portion of it. We provide a full-service solution starting with the goals and concept of your new website through design and then to programming. We also help with marketing once the website is launched!
What factors determine web design costs ?
The total cost of your website design project is ultimately determined by the amount of functionality and number of pages. As the size of the website grows, so does the time it takes to create layouts and program the website. As additional functionality is required, more time is necessary to program it right.
Our web design calculator shows estimate cost, and you can use it to see what different options affect the total cost of your website project.
How does the website redesign process work ?
Our certified digital project manager, strategy manager, and programming manager work together to guide your website project through each phase taking in your edits and feedback and ensuring the project stays on track.
We start with discovery and planning then begin the design phase. We work on content creation and information architecture from the beginning so it happens parallel to the construction of the website.
After design of the home page and sub-page styles are finalized, programming begins. You are provided updates on progress, so you can give feedback and revisions throughout the whole process.
As programming continues, content gets loaded and functionality starts to come together. Once programming ends, all content and additional materials should be done as well.
We then move into a testing phase to ensure your website works on all devices, functions as expected, and accomplishes the goals of your website project.
Finally, we prepare the website for its hosting location and launch. After launch, we continue to test and adjust to ensure a 100% successful launch!
Will my website be responsive ?
We feel a website isn’t ready to launch until it is responsive. Your website should work on desktop computers along with mobile devices like ipads, tablets, and phones. We build all of our websites responsively, and go through a rigorous testing process to ensure your website displays as correct as possible from one device to the next.
What will my website be built on ?
Your website will be created with a content management system (CMS) that allows you to manage and update your website easily. We typically use the WordPress CMS system, because many people are familiar with it and it allows for robust customizations while still allowing you to manage your website.
We build websites with WordPress to run as fast as possible with security in mind as well. We know how to build a lean website that loads quickly while still giving you all of the functionality you need.
Where should my website be hosted ?
We recommend you host on a server or with a company that gives you a fair amount of control over your hosting account. Many popular solutions like Godaddy hosting don’t offer as much control and require coordination with their support through chat or phone call.
We provide a full-service hosting solution that includes website hosting, website uptime monitoring, daily and weekly website backups, and website maintenance.
No matter where you choose to host, you want a hosting provider that has a fast server, quick support, and options for adjusting security settings as necessary.
How do I provide feedback and revisions ?
Our digital project manager coordinates constant communication throughout the project on a daily and weekly basis. We have built in feedback and revisions into the phases of our process, so we will let you know when you need to review.
If you have additional feedback and revision requests throughout the project, you can always reach out to your project manager via email, phone, or text. Share your changes, and the project manager will coordinate the changes with the development team.
Will you train me on how to use my website ?
Once we move into the launch phase, we begin creating training documents and videos to ensure you can use and update your website.
The training materials we provide will go over basic edits and managing any custom functionality your website contains.
We also provide on-going support for our hosted clients and help you learn more about day-to-day management of your website as needed.
Will you maintain my site for me ?
All websites should be updated and maintained to prevent any security breaches and hacking attempts. Websites built with a content management system (CMS) require on-going updates to the core system and any plugins used on the website.
We provide a full-service website hosting and maintenance plan that includes vulnerability scans and updating along with regularly scheduled updates and maintenance throughout the year.
If you choose another hosting solution, we can still provide maintenance support through a non-hosted service plan.
Although you can ignore regular maintenance and updates, we recommend you keep your website up-to-date to prevent any unwanted security breaches.
What sort of ongoing services do you provide ?
We offer a full-service hosting and maintenance plan that gives you complete peace of mind and security for your website. Our plan includes website hosting, website uptime monitoring, daily and weekly backups, and regular scheduled maintenance along with website management support. We really take care of it all with our full-service plans.
Most of our clients utilize our ongoing service, so they have a partner with their website.
Along with hosting services, we also offer full-service digital marketing services to help extend the website and create a complete online lead generation system.

June 1, 2023
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Disability profiles supported in our website
Epilepsy Safe Mode: this profile enables people with epilepsy to use the website safely by eliminating the risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations.
Visually Impaired Mode: this mode adjusts the website for the convenience of users with visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
Cognitive Disability Mode: this mode provides different assistive options to help users with cognitive impairments such as Dyslexia, Autism, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements of the website more easily.
ADHD Friendly Mode: this mode helps users with ADHD and Neurodevelopmental disorders to read, browse, and focus on the main website elements more easily while significantly reducing distractions.
Blindness Mode: this mode configures the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is software for blind users that is installed on a computer and smartphone, and websites must be compatible with it.
Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Additional UI, design, and readability adjustments
Font adjustments – users, can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
Color adjustments – users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over 7 different coloring options.
Animations – epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos, GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions.
Content highlighting – users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
Audio muting – users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
Cognitive disorders – we utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
Additional functions – we provide users the option to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.
Browser and assistive technology compatibility
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Notes, comments, and feedback
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
